I participated in a 5" red and white fabric swap. My squares arrived over the weekend. After seeing some of the red and white quilts that were on display a few months ago in New York, I was really excited about this swap.
I am thinking about a zig zag quilt. Some of the squares won't make it into my quilt. Some are just too orange and some have other colors mixed in. Most everyone understood the idea of red & white, some didn't. I now have to cull, count all the squares and figure out how big the quilt will be.
There are not many duplicates and that is really nice. There are some that are whimsical, some that are very graphic and some are simply gorgeous.
Now I have to decide if I am going to be REALLY lazy and just buy packs of Moda Bella White charm packs or cut all the white squares. I don't like cutting but I am also not sure if any local shops carry the solid charm packs. I really want to get started on this quilt!
